At some point in our lives, we ask the question, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” It is the age-old question. How much faith do we need? In the book of Job, the Bible tells us that Job never lost his faith in God, even under the most heartbreaking circumstances that tested him to his core. It’s hard to imagine losing everything we own in one day—property, possessions, and even children.
Today we’re joined by one man who has experienced the depths of pain in his circumstance, and like Job, he has persevered in his faith. Art Lane owns a small business in northeast Wisconsin, and his journey of faith was put to the test a few years ago. It’s a story that will challenge you and strengthen your own hope for a Christ who never, never leaves us or forsakes us even in our darkest times.
Beginning our journey of faith with God requires that we immerse ourselves in His Word (Titus 1:13-14). We must learn about His love, His justice, His mercy, and His plan. We must form a relationship with Him, so that we can know Him personally through His Son, Jesus Christ (John 17:3). We should ask Him to reveal Himself to us and change us. The Bible promises that if we seek God, we will find Him (Matthew 7:7). And if we allow Him to, He will transform us into new people who can know His will (Romans 12:2).
